Here are some photos taken during my 3 day holiday in September 1999 at Catania and Taormina, two cities in Sicily / Italy. Catania is more famous for its shopping centre and markets which sells almost everything at very good prices, for example the large centre market. Catania also has many large historical buildings, several museums and parks. Food is also one of the strong points of Catania, it was so delicious and relatively not expensive. The confectionery and sweet pies are really a delight here.
Taormina, then, is more touristic, beautiful, nature-full, relaxing and peaceful. It is quite small and you can walk all around in one day. Since Taormina is situated very high up, like on a small mountain, there are so spectacular panoramic views. The climate in general was wonderful in September, warm, sunny, but sometimes dry especially in Catania.
